Pamela from Kenya on Today
“One…. two… three” we counted all the way up to five with Pamela’s dad. That’s all the different vehicles they’ll need to take before reaching home. And there may even be a motorbike or two on top of that number that they’ll need to take! Their home is probably at least a seven hour trip from here, so as soon as Pamela is free to go hopefully early next week, they’ll embark on their long journey back on public transport. Thankfully, between now and then, our morning sunshine is providing them with joyful rays to soak up, and Pamela’s dad is being so patient and Pamela, so energetic! Please pray for smooth traveling from here on out -- both for Pamela’s healing and their actual road journey back home!

Joseph from Kenya on Today
We’re graced with the presence of a child development psychologist intern for the next few months and this morning, she took the time to hand out coloring books to our kiddos. Joseph sat coloring away at a Captain America coloring page while he waited to get a healing cast put on his other leg that he’ll wear to help stretch that foot before it gets surgery. It will also be a cast that helps aid in healing his wound. Please pray that everyday, his body will be like Captain America’s -- strong and tough -- and that it’ll heal up in no time!

Xavier from Kenya on Yesterday
Xavier got the 'sillies' as the doctor was examining him. He kept giggling as the doctor was helping him do some range of motion exercises. We had a chance to take a picture after the doctor was done and we are happy to share this smile with you. Xavier’s mum was encouraged to continue with physiotherapy and we will see our friend again in six months time.

Emmanuel from Kenya on Yesterday
Emmanuel’s smile is one of the things we were looking forward to seeing this morning as we drove to our mobile clinic location! When he got to clinic he was excited to see us and also he wanted to show us that he was no longer using crutches to move around! After his checkup, the doctor who saw Emmanuel said that he was healing well and was officially allowed to put his crutches aside. Please thank God with us for this progress!

Catherine from Kenya on Yesterday
We saw Catherine this week during mobile clinic! She was as jovial as always and had been brought by one of her friends alongside her grandma. Catherine’s apparatus can now be removed and she needs to come to CURE Kenya for the procedure. Please pray for Catherine and her grandma as they plan to travel to our hospital in Kijabe!

Shalin from Kenya on Yesterday
Shalin was in the company of her dad when she came to our mobile clinic today for check up! She has outgrown her AFO so she needs new ones which will be fitted during the next clinic. Shalin is doing well and we were happy to catch up with her today, thank you for your continued prayers for her!

Pamela from Kenya on Yesterday
“What I love about Pamela, she’s a girl who’s very social and very open,” Pastor Emmy said. “If she has a need, she’ll tell you!” Pamela spends her days in the playroom when she’s able which gives Emmy time with Pamela. Pamela’s a bit young for deep conversations, but she’s still in an environment where there’s joy and love and Jesus abounding. Please pray that as she spends her last few days here before her wound check and hopeful home-going, she’ll absorb as much of that as she can!

Joseph from Kenya on Yesterday
We found out from Pastor Emmy at least part of the reason Joseph didn’t go for surgery yesterday - somebody had shared a little bit of cake with him! We love cake around here and think it’s meant for sharing, but on the day of your surgery when you’re not meant to eat a thing, it’s something that must be saved for later! Good thing is, Joseph’s surgery still happened, even if it was today. Because Joseph’s clubfoot is a result of his spina bifida, he will most likely have to wear orthotics the rest of his life lest his nerves cause his clubfoot to return. While this is a bummer, it’s a small price to pay for the ability to walk! Pray for our boy as he heals and learns a new normal!

Monicah from Kenya on Yesterday
“We are trying to make Monicah to become beautiful,” Pastor Emmy told us as she painted Monicah’s cast. “They complimented me on my hair this morning, so I told them I am a child of God, so I should always be beautiful.” There’s something to be said about representing God in the way you look and giving Him your best even in that. “They should be shining!” Emmy said of children of God. Let’s pray for Monicah as she goes back home today -- that she will shine for Jesus!

Jesse from Kenya on Yesterday
“If he was having pain, I would be worried,” physio George explained to us today of Jesse. Jesse’s got a bit of a limp going on, but thankfully -- no pain. Therefore, George doesn’t need to be worried and neither does Jesse. Jesse is a kid -- he loves playing. And his mom told us he loves jumping too. He’s able to function even with his limp. He’s got a bit of a leg length discrepancy, so that contributes to the limp. He was assessed for a shoe raise and once Jesse’s mom brings a shoe to them to raise, they’ll make him one. He’s schedule to come for physio in March, so we’ll catch Jesse at that time if not before!

Jans from Kenya on Yesterday
We were in theatre when we were surprised to find Jans in recovery! What we thought was yesterday’s procedure was apparently today’s. Thankfully, it’s not a procedure that requires a long stay in hospital. Nope, in fact, Jans came from his procedure, was taken good care of by Sam the nurse in recovery, returned to his bed, ate some grub, and got discharged at some point after! He’ll come back in a couple of weeks and we’ll see how he’s fairing. Please pray that he’ll be fairing very well!

Kevin from Kenya on Yesterday
“Kelvin’s (Kevin) dad accepted Christ!” These were the words from Pastor Phoebe’s mouth this morning and they’re some of the most eternally impactful words that could be said! Yesterday we caught the two of them chatting and today we found out why they were chatting! We’re excited for the impact that this could have on not only Raymond, but Kevin and the rest of his family. God has a way of coming in and transforming families, starting with one person. Please pray that Raymond will be the one and that he won’t just stay as the one, but instead share Jesus with his family and beyond!

Lewis from Kenya on 2 days ago
All serious faces aside, today was a good day because Lewis got his last cast off and headed over to the workshop to pick up his new orthotics! We didn’t get the chance to ask about the new baby, but we’re trusting all is well and we’re grateful that Lewis is healing so his family can hopefully spend more time together snuggling their new baby! We’ll catch them in April when they’ll come for a checkup.

Stephanie from Kenya on 2 days ago
Stephanie’s cast was not behaving very well and it had moved, so back again to the hospital they came this week. She got a new one and now let’s pray that this one will stay perfectly in place until just the right time for it to come off! The good news is that Stephanie and her family got to see their friend Chege -- our social worker and the person who introduced us to Stephanie even before she arrived in the hospital for her surgery. We’ll catch Stephanie again in just a few weeks!

Jans from Kenya on 2 days ago
“A joy that’s shared is a joy made double.” (Proverb) Balloons can bring joy because they have the potential to light up the faces of the children that receive them, and the children that receive them can bring joy because their lit up faces are in turn shared with others! Jans' joy will hopefully increase even more now that he’s gone to theatre to have his pins removed. If all goes well, he’ll head home today and we’ll catch him again next time. Please pray that his joy won’t be stolen by any momentary pain he might be experiencing!
